you can only keep one thing in your head at a time i guess. >> jeffrey dahmer's stay in akron may have been brief, but his effect on the city may last for sometime to come. as one spectator put it, it may be gruesome, but it's history s gruesome, but it's history. this morning an investigation continues after a passenger bus slammed into the back of a big rig near palm springs over the weekend with at least 13 people dead. investigators are trying to figure out what caused the crash. plus, an 11th woman comes forward accusing donald trump of sexual misconduct as the republican nominee threatens to take legal action once his campaign is over. and hillary clinton tag teams with her running mate tim kaine to take on donald trump, branding him a sore loser over the weekend.
2:01 am
good morning to you on this monday, october 24th. thanks for joining us, i'm betty nguyen alongside alex witt and louis burgdorf. 13 people are dead and 31 injured following a massive accident in california. that bus was heading to los angeles when it slammed into the back of a truck, which was traveling about five miles per hour due to traffic. police say the bus was launched 15 feet into the truck's trailer. morgan radford has more. >> reporter: mangled metal, bus seats strewn along the side of the highway, bodies covered in plastic. investigators scouring the twisted wreckage after this passenger tour bus slammed into the back of a big rig. firefighters pulling victims from the wreckage. >> are the victims expected to recover? >> we're not going to make any predictions, but everyone is stable at this time. >> reporter: it happened just after 5:00 a.m. when the tour bus left the red earth casino in salton sea beach and rear ended
2:02 am
a semi truck on interstate 10 in palm springs. authorities were able to pry apart the bus and the back of this big rig, where they are cutting out pieces of the truck, the cargo inside smashed and shredded. the cause still unknown. >> in almost 35 years i've never been to a crash where there's been 13 confirmed fatalities, so it's tough for all of us. >> they may not be able to determine the exactause of the accident, because the driver was among those killed. the driver of the tractor trailer suffered only minor injuries. an 11th woman came forward over the weekend to accuse donald trump of inappropriate sexual behavior. jessica drake claimed trump kissed her and other women at his hotel room ten years ago. after she left, she alleges that trump called and asked her how much to return to his hotel suite. jake is represented by gloria
2:03 am
allred, a long-time clinton supporter. trump strongly denied the allegations, as well as other accusations, and promised to take action. >> every woman lied when they came forward to hurt my campaign. total fabrication. the events never happened, never. all of these liars will be sued after the election is over. >> less than two weeks ago attorneys for trump threatened legal action against "the new york times" for publishing allegations from women, but no lawsuit has been filed. yesterday on "meet the press," trump's campaign manager expl n explained why he's waiting to sue his accusers. >> why not sue now? >> we're busy winning the presidency. we're a little bit busy doing
2:04 am
that. he's just putting people on notice they can't falsely accuse him. >> this is a new poll shows voters are concerned about trump's reaction and rhetoric. voters overwhelmingly disapprove of trump's response to questions about trump's treatment of women 69% to 24%. that includes 71% of women, 67% of men, 70% of independents, and 41% of republicans. meanwhile, hillary clinton sought to contrast her focus in the final two weeks with that of trump's. >> we're making our closing argument. we're talking about what's at stake in the election, we're drawing contrast, but we're giving people something to vote for, not just against, and i saw where our opponent, donald trump, went to gettysburg, one of the most extraordinary places in american history, and basically said if he's president
2:05 am
he'll spend his time suing women who have made charges against him based on his behavior. >> and president obama didn't hold back against donald trump and the republicans when have now walked back their support of their party's candidate. during an event in las vegas last night for hillary clinton, the president told an enthusiastic crowd that trump's rhetoric and insistence the election is rigged shows he's losing. >> donald trump is already talking about how the game's rigged. i got to say, that means he's losing. you know, if you start making -- if you've ever played a basketball game, and, like, halfway in the middle of the game suddenly someone starts saying the refs are making me lose and i'm going to walk off the court, that means you're losing.
2:06 am
and, by the way, it means you don't have what it takes to do this job, because there are a bunch of times where it gets tough. there are a lot of times where things don't go your way. now when suddenly it's not working and people are saying, wow, this guy's kind of out of line, all of a sudden these republican politicians, who were okay with all this crazy stuff up to a point, suddenly they are all walking away. oh, this is too much. so, you know, when you finally get him on tape bragging about actions that qualify as sexual assault and his poll numbers go down, suddenly that's a deal breaker. well, what took you so long? what the heck? >> hillary clinton spent her sunday campaigning in north carolina, where polls continue to show a tight race with donald trump. yesterday morning she spoke at a
2:07 am
baptist church in durham, joined by five mothers who lost children to gun violence and during her speech clinton discussed racial divide. >> there are those, as you know, fanning the flames of resentment and division, who want to exploit people's fears, even if it means tearing our nation further apart. they say that all of our problems will be solved by more law and order, as if systemic racism didn't exist. we've got to do the hard and maybe most important work of healing, healing our country. >> with election day approaching, clinton is focusing on battleground states. this week she's hitting the trail in new hampshire, florida, and iowa. clinton will be back in north carolina on thursday, where she'll be joined by first lady michelle obama. it will be the first time the two have campaigned together. a number of celebrity are also hitting the campaign trail for clinton. katy perry visited students in
2:08 am
las vegas and singer miley cyrus went door to door at the dorms of george mason university on saturday. tim kaine says the campaign is taking nothing for granted. >> it's been a season of surprises. we like what we see now. we like the early voting activity and the absentee ballot requests coming in other states, but we are not taking anything for granted and we're going to hammer to do everything we can before the polls close november 8th. both hillary clinton and tim kaine used the same language to criticize donald trump's refusal for refusing to accept the results of the presidential election during the last debate. >> to say you won't respect the results of the election, that is a direct threat to our democracy. the peaceful transfer of power is one of the things that makes america america. it is not a joke. some people are sore losers, you
2:09 am
know, we just got to keep going. >> another great moment was -- not great, but shocking, in the last debate, was donald trump saying that he didn't know whether he would abide by the results of the election. i mean -- there's a word for that, it's called sore loser. sore loser. >> vice president joe biden was in classic biden mode during a rally in pennsylvania, unloading on trump over the "access hollywood" tapes saying what trump said is, quote, textbook definition of sexual assault. >> he said, because i'm famous, because i'm a star, because i'm a billionaire, i can do things other people can't. what a disgusting assertion for anyone to make.
2:10 am
the press always ask me, don't i wish i were debating him. no, i wish we were in high school, i could take him behind the gym. that's what i wish. >> well, a new national poll shows donald trump entering the last two weeks of the campaign with a steep deficit. the abc news election tracking poll shows hillary clinton with a 12-point lead, up three points in the week to 50%. trump has dropped five points to 38%. gary johnson with 5%, jill stein with 2%. clinton is ahead among men in a four-way race, 44% to trump's 41%. the lead among women is 20 points. clinton is also ahead among those with no college degree, 45% to 42%, though trump has a 19 point lead among white noncollege graduates. among all likely voters with a college degree, 57% to 32%.
2:11 am
split by race, trump has a four-point lead among white voters, 43% for clinton, 47% for him. among nonwhite voters clinton is up. 59% say trump is making excuses the election might be rigged through voter fraud. 39% say it's a legitimate concern. 65% of likely voters disapprove of trump's refusal to accept the election if he loses, including 34% of republicans. yesterday, trump's campaign manager acknowledged there is ground to be made up. >> where do you see this race right now, do you acknowledge that you're biehind? >> we are behind. she has advantages, $66 million in ad buys in september, thereby doubling her ad buys from august. most are negative against donald trump. she has tremendous advantages. she has a former president, happens to be her husband
2:12 am

2:31 am
2012. meanwhile a new poll in florida shows clinton 46% to trump's 43%. a look at the partisan breakdown shows trump's struggle among florida likely voters, clinton is garnering 91% of democrats support, while trump is taking 82% of republicans, a problem he's having around the country. the associated press finds if clinton gets victories in states she's currently leading comfortably, that alone would give her two more electoral votes than needed to win. the electoral college map has karl rove saying he no longer thinks a trump victory is possible. >> well, if he plays an inside strength he can get it, but i doubt he's going to be able to play it. he has 186 electoral votes he either leads outside of the margin or has thought comfortably put away. that's compares to romney's 206. he would have to not only win

president now between you and alaska, i have to say. >> politico reports this year the president will back about 150 candidates across 20 states for state level races, including robo calls, social media posts, mailers, and photos of obama with the candidates. and he's been aggressive on the trail. at a fundraiser last night he slammed darrell issa, who's locked in a tight re-election battle. the president said, "i think somebody called darrell issa trump before trump." here he is campaigning with katherine cortez masto yesterday in nevada, targeting her opponent. >> you can make her the first-ever latina to serve in the united states senate. just a few weeks ago her opponent was supporting donald trump. who was bragging about actions that qualify as sexual assault. katherine's been a national leader against the fight against

"if gop loses senate, it's not

problem. i want to vote for somebody. >> but you're listening. >> i'm listening. i'm trying. i'm really trying. >> you're trying to get to the place where you can vote for the democratic candidate. >> yes. >> and you can't believe you're saying that. >> i cannot believe i'm saying that. >> are you enthusiastic about hillary clinton or voting against donald trump? >> i don't know if i'm very enthusiastic about her. i do think she's qualified looking at her resume. she is qualified. >> but you'd really like to have another option. >> if there was another option. i believe she could do the job. >> when african-americans vote in large numbers in ohio, ohio votes democratic. >> yes. >> and when they don't come to the polls, ohio votes republican. >> yes. >> what's going to happen? >> i'm going to pray that they come to the polls. i'm going to -- >> but you're not feeling that ground swell? >> i'm not hearing it. >> voting this time we're going to have to pick one or the other

and it's kind of like picking a seat on the titanic. i'd rather have other choices. >> these men and lisa tolbert should have hillary clinton in common. this is the united steelworkers local 1104 and the only picture of the president on the wall is fdr's. at the door, the leadership backs clinton, but a sign doesn't paper over jobs lost to trade. terry mcauliffe is said to give nearly half a million to the campaign of an official at the fbi who helped oversea the investigation over hillary clinton's e-mail use. mccaauliffe has tied to bill an hillary clinton. the pac donated more than $467,000 to the 2015 state senate campaign of jill mccade. mccade's husband is the current deputy director of the fbi. in addition, the virginia
2:39 am
democratic party donated an additional $207,000 worth of supports for the mccabe campaign. a spokesman for the governor said he supported jill mccabe because he believed she would be a good state senator. this is a customary practice for virginia governors. any insinuation his support was tied to anything other is ridiculous. the fbi said in a statement that during his wife's campaign andrew mccabe played, "played no role, attended no events, and did not participate in fundraising of any kind." months after the completion of her campaign, he was promoted to deputy where he sure sued for the first time a role in the investigation of the hillary clinton's e-mails." documents part of the latest data dump over the weekend allegedly hacked from john podesta, they have not been
2:40 am
independently authenticated by nbc news, but the clinton campaign and u.s. intelligence officials have blamed russia for hacking the e-mails. some of the e-mails show clinton aides considering placing jokes about her private e-mail server into speeches. clinton quipped about the social media app snapchat, which deletes posts automatically. i love it, those messages disappear all by themselves. in a separate exchange, the clinton team seems to celebrate her first news conference on the e-mails. podesta was sent an e-mail with the subject "seemed to go well today," adding, i don't know how the story advances, so that's good. podesta responded that takes us back to the server, which goes back to benghazi, which is good for us. one of former president bill clinton's top aides allegedly criticized former president on his comments comparing president obama's win in south carolina to

2:46 am
is an uphill battle when it comes to the regulatory front. now, donald trump has already said he's going to block this deal because he says, "it's too much concentration of power in the hands of too few." and hillary clinton has also vowed to crack down on these mega mergers. then there's still scrutiny coming from the department of justice and the fcc, the telecoms regulator, so in case the fcc is asking for some spinoffs from time warner, at&t might have to go along with that. in other news, i want to talk about what's happening in the brokerage industry. according to a number of reports, td ameritrade and td bank are close to buying scottrade financial. that deal could be announced as early as this morning. and last but not least, let's come back and talk about earnings season. we're now in the thick of it. this week we're going to get a third of the s&p companies'

reporting number and a heavy focus this week on tech companies like apple, alphabet, and amazon. i want to spend time on apple, which reports numbers tomorrow. apple is expected to report the iphone's first annual decline in sales volumes, but analysts are actually a lot more optimistic when it comes to the christmas quarter. back over to you guys. >> thanks so much, live for us in london. betty? speaking of money and lots of it, it's been 108 years since the chicago cubs won the world series and the cleveland indians haven't won since 1948, so if you want to snag a seat this year, you better have been saving that whole time. according to website ticket iq, the average price for a seat at wrigley field is, get this, tracking over $6,600. can you believe it? well, in cleveland it's slightly, but only slightly, more reasonable at $3,500. get out the checkbooks. all right, let's get a check on the weather outside. this is free today for us
2:48 am
viewers. good morning. >> yeah, you're not going to pay for this kind of weather in the northeast today. check this out, temperatures are worth showing again. this is a dramatic drop from last week. if you haven't broken out your fall jacket, this will challenge you. down into the lower 40s by the middle of this week in burlington, even boston itself, we won't be able to crack 50 degrees by tomorrow and chillier on wednesday. it's a tale of two seasons, though, because we have warmer weather across the central part of the country. in fact, we are checking out summer-like temperatures, so short sleeves and shorts. it's a tale of two seasons where we hav temperatures in the lower 80s here from oklahoma city down to dallas and it will only get warmer throughout the course of the week. tomorrow, temperatures in the 80s. enjoy that sunshine, that warmth. no changes here, mid to upper 70s, atlanta, 80s across the midwest. check out the desert southwest, heat back in phoenix, almost triple digits. we're getting into the second half of october now, so big changes out there.
2:49 am
we have stormy weather to talk about across the west, and this is a good thing for the water tables, especially in california. seeing rain moving onshore, heavier rain east of san francisco. this is the next big storm system in the pipeline of storms here for this week, so we'll be able to replenish water supplies out there. check out these rainfall totals. this is through friday, so three to four inches and i would surmise some of these higher elevations closer to five to six inches of rain as we head through the rest of the week. much needed rain there and we need it, because as we go into a la nina winter, things will dry out. chilly across the northern parts of the country, mid 50s in minneapolis, 56 in chicago. the nice weather along the gulf coast for today, so no travel problems today unless you're along the west coast or northeast, where we may see some gusty winds and chilly weather there. so airport delays possible, but overall, much of the country for this week coming up, alex, looking pretty good. before we go to break, let's

look at some of the stories we're not covering today. in new york, the city is sending in feral cats to decrease the city's famed rat problem. volunteers are trapping and training the cats to scare off rodents across the city. new york's famous pizza rat could not be reached for comment, so we're not covering that one. stop us if you heard this before, an emu walks into a bar. strolled around the pub, we're not going to cover that today. according to a bystander, he did offer to put everyone's drinks on his bill. who's writing this stuff? finally this, pantsuits for hillary flash mob. we're not covering any of these stories today. instead, when we come back, a live report from iraq. back after this.

sectary ash carter made a surprise visit to iraq this weekend. he says although he's encouraged by the progress of the operation, the international community must prepare for a post-isis mosul that will have a, quote, desperate need for stabilization and reconstruction. this comes as a top u.s. general tells nbc news that isis is attempting to establish a caliphate in afghanistan. joining us now live from irbil, iraq, matt bradley. matt, there are reports that isis has launched a new attack on the iraqi town of rutbah. what can you tell us about that? >> reporter: thanks, betty.
2:54 am
the rutbah attack is meant to distract the front line fighting in mosul and drag some of the major forces away from that massive fight that's coming right upon the second largest city in iraq. this is classic islamic state diversionary tactics. they did this in kirkuk, which is about an hour and a half south of where i'm standing right now here in irbil and others. you can describe them as kind of almost medieval crazy attacks. they set fire to a sulfur factory, have done things also in the valley, signals the islamic state is coming under pressure and they are lashing out erratically in order to distract and use new and novel methods to really kind of push back against the iraqi security forces, whose forces are all coming around mosul just in the last week. but the front line fighting has really kind of slowed down since the battle started last monday. what we've seen is some of the shaping operations that have been going around to the north
2:55 am
and east have reached an impasse and that's not necessarily because of islamic state fighters themselves, but because of the defensive ramparts they've built in these towns, which are mostly deserted. talking mostly about ieds causing so many problems for peshmerga fighters and special forces, iraqi special forces who are moving in, and have still yet to pierce the outer defenses of the city of mosul. betty? >> we'll watch closely, thank you. back with a look at the stories that will be making news in the day ahead right after this. how out we pump reinto pmo? ♪ nah. what se? what if we he ses reps? ♪ nah. what else? what iigitize the whole pp ? so people cacuomize their bike before ey buy it. that worked better an expte i'll diaitack. yeah, dialt .ed better an expte just a little. live busins,owered by sap. when you run live, you simple.
